Episode 52 --- The Big 50 Show - Part C

The final piece of the 50th Episode Trilogy Extravaganza begins with an introduction by the lovely Gigi Edgley (Chiana on Farscape).

We begin the festivities with the booty brought back by Glenn from Wonderfest. A dvd of The Host, Jet Jaguar, of Godzilla vs Megalon, figure, a Guyver Zoanoid, Deadly Hands of Kung Fu comic magazines, and Vampirella magazines.

Geek and tell continues with Brad's expansion of the PodCulture
Studios bookshelves with new hardcover Runaways books (thanks to Scott!) , Buffy Bad Bargain and The Deathless books, and a Doctor Who novel called Price of Paradise. We find a great deal on Lego Star Wars II for the 360, another Supernatural comic, and a swanky Green Lantern keychain from The Great Escape. Fear not! Our dvd shelves were not to be left out! Brad's picked up Cowboy Bebop and Steamboy on UMD, Buck Rogers in the 25th Century, and thanks to the KickAss Mystic Ninjas, we're now in posession of The Adventures of Buckaroo Bonzai. Given the future hero theme, we speculate on the remake of Flash Gordon.

Geek Cuisine comes full circle this week, commemorating the first Geek Cuisine, as we enjoy a Triple Chocolate Big Kit Kat bar.

Promos this week come courtesy of The 3 Heroes Podcast.

Music comes from the talented Jonathan Coulton with "Flickr" and his cover of "Bills, Bills, Bills".

An extra special thanks to Beatnik Turtle for the absolutely fabulous theme song! We couldn't be happier with it, and we dare our listeners to keep it from getting stuck in their heads!

Episode 49 --- The Nifty Before Fifty

This week we find the geeksome threesome on the cusp of their 50th episode!

Glenn is making headway with his Dangerman boxed set, has picked up 4400 season 3, looks forward to Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End, and Wonderfest here in Louisville. All that, but the siren song of World of Warcraft still beckons.

Christina grimaces at the news that there is a Sims movie in the works, and Brad's been burning a hole in his Marvel Ultimate Alliance game disc. Glenn put aside his Alliance game for Ghost Recon and Halo 2.

Geek Cuisine is a Raspberries & Cream Hershey bar.

To keep Glenn spoiler-free, Brad and Christina kick him out of the studio while they discuss the power of three, both Series 3 of Doctor Who, and the 3 episodes of Drive. The most recent Who episode, "Human Nature" based on the novel by Paul Cornell has Christina noting the performance of Thomas Sangster formerly seen in Love Actually, and Brad loves the appearance of Richard Brooks on Drive. They allude to a more in depth discussion of this months season(and series) finales, and look forward to catching up with Supernatural -both the show and comic.

Glenn returns, happy in the fact that he's picked up the Adventures of Superman on dvd, and liken the technology to Who Framed Roger Rabbit. Christina looks forward to Monster Squad being released as a 20th Anniversary set.

Brad and Christina talk about "42" of Doctor Who, and then Christina and Glenn geek about Zoolander. Brad introduces our new PodCulture Forums , and we lie SGL to rest for now.

There is no Guilty Pleasure this week, but fear ye not, the next episode will require three times the penance!

Promotions this week include The Who Cast, The Cup Car Update, and The Scapecast.

The PodCulture forums are moving soon !

Hey gang....just wanted to let yall know that with the big episode 50 coming soon there will be some big changes to the PodCulture forums.

The PodCulture forums will be spinning off into their own little corner of the cyber-verse over at http://forums.podculture.net We will be cross-posting at the original forums over at www.Bluegrassbrowncoats.net for awhile as a transition period. We really want to thank Adam (aka Casivona) for all the work he's done in setting up the original forums for us and allowing PodCulture to hang out here while we were first getting started in the podcasting world.

The changes will really be effective when Episode 50 is put out, however if you want to get an early start in the new forums, head over to http://forums.podculture.net and check them out! There is also a link for the NEW forums here on the main PodCulture page. (left hand column about half-way down the page)

Again thanks to everyone who has posted here, and who has supported us while we have been a part of the BGBC site. The original PodCulture forums will always be very special to us. We hope to see you on the new forums soon!

Episode 48 --- The House That Geek Built - Part B

After ratings month, Glenn returns to us with news that he's still watching Lost, and the trio anticipate the season finale, and contemplate the series end. Will it come to an annoying end like Dallas or The Newhart Show? Is it better to have a finite end, or be in limbo like Babylon 5? Noting Lost actors in other roles, we mention Brick and Pulse.

Glenn has picked up Pan's Labyrinth and The Fountain, and we look forward to his reviews. That is if any of his free time remains after World of Warcraft and Wonderfest.

Our geek toy segment has Randy from Geekshow.us reprising his role as Glenn, and talking about the new Transformers Movie swag. Christina shares the story of Brad bested by the Optimus preview figure, and gleams over the JLA and Flash shirts she found at Wal-Mart.

Christina and Brad thank the guys and gals from the Geekshow universe for a fabulous weekend, and encourage our listeners to check us out in our guest spot on Geekshow's 50th episode.

A HUGE THANK YOU to Jayhawk35 aka Mark for his Doctor Who, Primeval, Tripping The Rift, and Red Dwarf dvds! You're the best, Jayhawk!

Comic talk this week finds Brad and Randy covering Green Lantern Corps #12, Amazing Spidergirl, New Avengers #30, Wonder Woman, JSA Classified-Green Lantern, Alex Ross' Justice, the final issue of 52, Fantastic Four, Runaways 25 & 26, Green Lantern #18, Justice Society of America, Supernatural:Origins, Astonishing X-Men, Ultimate Fantastic Four, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, and Countdown. We discuss the idea of "cannon" versus "non-cannon" material in fandom, giving Buffy and George Lucas/Star Wars as an example.

Get your guilt on this week with Glenn's review of the Asian Assassin flick called Beautiful Beast.

FINALLY someone sent Glenn a dollar! Thanks to Cap'n Fatpants, aka Kevin, for Glenn's very own PodCulture dollar!

The trio closes with respect for the Guitar Hero 2 players that we know ("Freebird!").

Promos this week come courtesy of The Kickass Mystic Ninjas, The Cup Car Update, and The Babylon Podcast.
